Happy New Year,2024!

Flamingo - Saltwater Fishing Report

January 2, 2024

Happy New Year, 2024!
The last couple months were strange at best. We had a few Lows come out of the Carribean and cross the Keys and South Florida. The storms reached winds in the Tropical storm range twice but because the storm hit out of season you can't call it a Tropical Storm. We got lots of rain in all the places I fish and then it got cold.

All that and we still catch fish either in Biscayne Bay, Flamingo or Key Largo. If you are lucky enough to fish on one of the good days in the middle it can be awesome. Some people cancel and some go fishing, sometime probably wrong decision.

Flamingo Area-

We are all hoping for a warming stretch so the Tarpon will get into the back backcountry, meanwhile we will keep catching whatever we can wherever we can. Snook, Trout, Redfish.

This past week in rough cold weather there was a great yellowtail bite in Key Largo 2 days just loaded up.

I am waiting for the good days but will go any time you want. Give me a call at 305 333 8149

Happy New Year,

Captain Jim Hobales
